The lovely people at Cheltenham Yurt Hire have just told us about their latest endeavour to be as carbon free as is possible for a tent company.
They have set up the Local Yurt Hire website to help their corner of the industry cut down on it’s carbon footprint (which can mount up, when you think of the number of trucks, people and tents that have to be transported to wedding venues across the UK).
Will at Cheltenham Yurt Hire said "We’re trying our best to reduce our carbon footprint; we ask couples, when booking with us, if they have checked whether there’s not a yurt hire company nearer their wedding venue".
They recently compiled a map of all the yurt hire companies that they know about throughout the United Kingdom and have invited them all to put a note on their own websites to let potential customers know of any company that might be nearer. This way they hope the mileage they all cover may be reduced and it will also help to promote each other’s businesses through a collaborative approach.
We think this is a amazing achievement and they definitely deserve an award for their innovative approach to business and their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint.
For more information on this carbon cutting initiative for yurt hire companies please go to the map.
Or contact Cheltenham Yurt Hire for more information on their own operating area.
Their tents are pretty amazing too! Take a look.
